Ingredients

  • 3 tins good quality chopped tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 large carrot chopped

Method

  1. Place the onion, carrot and celery in a large saucepan with about 50ml of water and cook over a medium heat with the lid on until soft (you may need to add more water to prevent it burning) - about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Allow the water to evaporate before adding the garlic.
  3. Cook for about 30 seconds before adding the remaining ingredients.
  4. Place the lid on the pan and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat, take the bunch of fresh thyme out (if using) and using a hand-held blender or other machine, process the mixture until smooth.
